Mobility Guest Pass
Guests staying* in the communities of Pirna, Königstein, Sebnitz, Bad Schandau, Reinhardtsdorf-Schöna, Rathmannsdorf, Gohrisch and Hohnstein receive the mobility guest pass. Apart from discount offers in more than 60 local leisure time facilities, this pass is valid as ticket for VVO (Upper Elbe Transport Network) buses, trains and ferries in Saxon Switzerland.
The mobility guest pass is valid from the day of arrival to the day of departure in the fare zones of Pirna (70), Bad Gottleuba (71), Bad Schandau (72) and Neustadt (73) for an unlimited number of trips. It is only valid for the VVO (Upper Elbe Transport Network) local public transport. Excluded special means of transport are the Hiking Boat (Wanderschiff), services of the Elbe River Passenger Boat Company (Personenschifffahrt auf der Elbe), the ferry in Kurort Rathen Village, the historic passenger elevator in Bad Schandau-Ostrau, and private bus services. The Kirnitzschtalbahn Tram is included in the mobility guest pass from June to August 2022. Before and after this period, the Kirnitzschtalbahn Tram is regarded as special means of transport and its use is not covered by the mobility guest pass. For trips outside the Saxon Switzerland fare zone boundaries, for instance to Dresden or to Bohemian Switzerland, supplementary tickets have to be purchased.
Saxon Switzerland Mobility Guest Pass is only valid for passenger transport. It does not cover the transport of pets and of bicycles.
*Except for guests who pay a flat-rate annual guest tax (e.g. permanent camp-site dwellers), if this is provided for in the by-laws.
The travel conditions and tariff regulations of the Upper Elbe Transport Network (Verkehrsverbund Oberelbe - VVO) apply. The transport services are provided on behalf and for the account of the transport companies united in the VVO network. They are our partners for the transport services covered by the mobility guest card.
Holders of a valid guest pass /mobility guest pass can claim a specified advantage by simply producing their pass for visual check before using the service. The guest pass /mobility guest pass is valid for the specified duration of a stay (including the day of arrival and the day of departure).
The guest passes are only valid if all required data are filled in. The guest’s surname and first name, the date of arrival and departure and – if applicable – the number of persons must be specified in a legible and unambiguous manner in the respective spaces.
Otherwise, the mobile guest card in particular is not valid and an increased fee at the expense of the user may be charged by the ticket inspector. The guest passes are non-transferable and are valid in conjunction with a valid photo ID of the person for whom the guest card is issued. The service providers are entitled to check the identity by requiring a photo ID for visual control.
For traveller groups, a group registration form is issued and the tour manager’s or a single group member’s name is specified on the guest passes. Guests travelling together and holding a group registration form can use the mobility guest pass as a group ticket if the guest whose name is specified in the pass is present in the means of transport belonging to the VVO transport network and can prove his or her identity appropriately.
All participating communities can enlist other service providers, whose advantages may only be available to guests staying in the respective community. Communication and all arrangements with these partners are the responsibility of the respective communities themselves.
